Rain gutters protect both the interior and exterior of your home from water damages. They do so by catching water, bringing it down through a specific pipe, and redirecting it away from the house. Also, different types of gutters also offer different looks for your home, such as elegant modern or traditional Victorian. Therefore, choosing the right type of gutter for your house will not only keep your home healthier but also, make the facade more appealing.
Rain gutters types are differentiated based on their cross-section. The two most common ones are the half-round and the k-style gutter. In addition, gutters differ in size, colors, material, construction, and other features or accessories such as gutter guards.
While gutters keep your home safe, gutter guards are the covers that protect your gutters from debris and allow them to work efficiently in keeping your roof intact.
There are many types of gutter guards, but our top 4 models include the perforated metal guards, the micro-mesh gutter guards, the reverse curve guards, and last but not least, the brush guards. Each option has different features and specifications and should be chosen by keeping in mind the shape and style of your roof.

Every renovation company has a preferred option when it comes to different types of gutter guards.
